used to talk about the philosopher kings. geeks have no interest in power. the only power we're interested in is low-power consumption and longer battery life and low prices so we can stay up later at night. geeks may inherit the earth, but they have no desire to rule it. >> in a poll reported by harris interactive in december of 2010, 45% of the people surveyed said that they would rather do household chores than to try and fix their computer or digital devices on their own. in the electronic age, it continues to be good to be a geek. that's this edition of 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. thank you for joining us. captioning by captionmax www.captionmax.com [ticking] >> even though there's a total embargo in this country against any trade with iran, iran still gets high tech materials and components for a variety of weapons from right here in the u.s.a. this man set up a trading company in philadelphia. you are charged with trying to buy a centrifuge that could be used to make biological weapons, like anthrax. >> yes. that's what they say. >> do you know how much money

me at 1-800-743-cnbc. when i used to teach selling stocks at goldman sachs, i told trainees you have to be ready to rebut the objections. expect challenges and meet them with good answers that put to rest the worries, concerns that would keep you from buying the stocks you want them to own. today the market put on a virtual rebuttal clinic and it led to a terrific day where the dow soared 179 points and the nasdaq surged 1.04%, as every important objection was silenced. no wonder we're closing in on those all-time highs. what are the negative presumptions that got rebutted? the u.s. economy must be slowing. right? i mean, on account of all that negative stuff people keep talking about. guess what. today made the notion seem fanciful. we got good macro, meaning we saw durable goods data, showing demand for machinery rose the most in two years. how does that happen? it comes on top of the recent increase in container board, the corrugated box stuff that your packages come in, fedex and stuff. one of the most sensitive economic indicators out there and then a $50 increase in sheet steel

amanpour joins us from rome. this report was in "the observer," the newspaper, saying one man was a 20-year-old seminarien, cardinal was a spiritual director and inappropriate approaches were made after night prayers. what do you know about the case and what cardinal o'brien is saying? >> reporter: well, look, we know according to published reports there's this case and three other cases. a total of four cases now coming out and accusing cardinal o'brien of inappropriate sexual misconduct. he himself is said to have taken up, obviously, legal counsel. he has, as we've said, resigned but he was resigning months ago. it's just that today pope benedict accepted that resignation. he didn't have to accept it today. it could have been further delayed but he did accept the resignation. and now we've also know, because of statements cardinal o'brien has posted, he will not come here to rome and take part in the election of the next pope in the conclave. he said that he would want the spotlight not to be on him but on the pope. but what is clear, suzanne and michael, is that, look, the sun is settin
? >> there's millions of us out there. >> everybody, let's hear it! geek squad! [cheering] >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. in this edition, we take a look at technology. we examine how breaches in digital security threaten everything from weapons systems to bank accounts. plus, we meet the mr. fix-its of the geek world. we begin with electronic sabotage. nothing has ever changed the world as quickly as the internet. in less than a decade, the pentagon's warning that it might be possible for a computer hacker to disable critical infrastructure in a major city and disrupt essential services has actually happened. other online attacks have seen millions of dollars stolen from banks and defense systems infiltrated. it's why, as we first reported in november of 2009, some people are already saying that the next big war is less likely to begin with a bang than a blackout. >> can you imagine your life without electric power? >> until february 2009, retired admiral mike mcconnell was the nation's top spy. as chief of national intelligence, he oversaw the central intelligence agen

you this earnings season. i wanted to offer you a new way to use earnings season, to put it in perspective, because most of you watching the show are not these day traders that i think really hijack a lot of the thinking. you're not trying to game a given quarter. it's become so difficult to predict, and often the initial moves aren't even accurate because of the press coverage or because something nasty occurred in the overall market because of europe or something involved with the election. in other words, other than those who are shorting or going long stocks ahead of the quarter, these earnings reports need a context to make you money. they can't be relied upon anymore because they aren't as predictive of future behavior as they once were. they are a piece of the puzzle, a part of the mosaic, but they are only one of many important parts of what predicts where a stock will go over the intermediate term. that tends to be the focus that i teach on the show. and it is a teaching show because i want you to know the metrics i'm using to pick stocks i talk about and recomme

challenged. a new brown by pat brown called "the murder of cleopatra" uses criminal profiling and crime reconstruction to determine if her death was a murder, not a suicide. an interesting theory and reminds us that legends are just about instinct. in a world of camera phones, youtube, tmz, twitter, all of us are under intense scrutiny and we really do overshare. and yes, might seem strange for a journalist to be complaining about the loss of mystery, but while knowing the truth is important, to me it's legend that makes life so exciting. what will the future think of our era? they'll have no one to hold up as a legend. they'll see all the warts and nastiness and infighting and, ah, that's sad. anderson cooper 360 starts right now. >>> erin, thanks. i'm wolf blitzer filling in for anderson cooper. tonight, a diamond heist straight out of an action movie script. thieves in belgium make off with $50 million in diamonds in just minutes. a highly choreographed heist now the question who done it? also a follow-up on a 360 investigation involving a veterans hospital, contaminated water and mu

are at an all time low. seems to me some of those profits could be used to pay workers a bit more. let's be honest here though, the real reason republicans oppose the minimum wage isn't their conservative ideology. after all, what's conservative about subsidizing the profits of private corporations through welfare, food stamps and medicaid so they can underpay their workers? the real reason they oppose the minimum page is precisely because their corporate benefactors want the taxpayer subsidy of low wages to continue. they're all for corporate welfare. it's time for the gop's corporate sponsors to step up and take some personal responsibility instead of leeching off the taxpayer. maybe if they took a stand for an increased minimum page they could make they're rebranding substantive. until then in tragic irony the million s of people who serve our food, take care of our children, and serve us in countless ways will continue to be undervalued and forced in government dependence by the gop and the businesses these republicans are beholden to. now to a man who is beholden to nobody, martin

, not just a rule by the court nor a rule of thumb judges use. the congress wrote a law in the clinton administration, president clinton signed it and that's the standard used. how do they decide whether they were negligent or gross negligence. what's the difference? easy example. you drive your car 40 miles an hour in a 25 miles an hour zone. that's negligence. you drive your car 830 miles an hour in -- 80 miles an hour in a 25 miles an hour, that's gross negligence. it has to do with how much you avoided the duty you have to preserve the asset and keep the people that work for you and the property around you safe. >> shepard: more closely tied example might be if you were trying to save money but didn't realize where you were skimping was a problem that might cost lives, that's one thing. if you saw problems, we know the rules, we're breaking the rules to save money, that's gross. >> that would be gross negligence. >> shepard: the argument has been made in the criminal trial suggesting that's what happened. >> i don't know which way the judge will go but i now how he's going to decid
